In brief: Swelling

The left side of the heart pumps blood throughout your body.
When it fails, it decreases blood flow to organs. This can cause kidney injury, liver injury, fatigue, shortness of breath with little exertion, swelling of the feet and legs, fluid build-up in the lungs, and difficulty sleeping flat due to shortness of breath. Medications and diet are important for this disease!
